27 Aug

My phone just rang . . . I had been asleep for a few hours and the phone just rang and now I am up . . . no more sleep for me today. I don’t go back to sleep easily. Who calls at 7 in the morning? Well, I know who does . . . and historically, I have always been an early riser, so my caller completely expected me to have been awake for a couple of hours by now . . . but, instead, I had only been asleep for a couple of hours.

Maybe I can sleep a bit again. It is not something that is easy for me to do . . . sleep during the day, or go back to sleep once i have woken up. But, maybe today I can do it. I am so tired.

I have an appointment with a pain management doctor this afternoon. I had a lot of pain with the last surgery. So, I am hoping that in seeing this doctor today that I can get some help getting the pain under control. That would be wonderful. So, we shall see how it goes.

Other than that, I am just trying to lay low and keep my chest intact before surgery . . . when ever that is. At the moment, the plan is to see a surgeon up at Cedars Sinai on Monday and hopefully he will be able to help me and will take me on as a patient. I have no guarantee that he will take me on . . . his office person told me that he has to see my skin to tell he will be able to help me and then it will be an issue of being able to schedule me as he is very busy. I am very, very nervous about the prospect of going in there on Monday and perhaps hearing that he can’t take me on. Then what? Where will I go then?

Step by step I guess. It is just that there isn’t time now to continue interviewing doctors and running around from one appointment to the next. And, so many take vacations at this time of year.

Well, enough worry for one morning. Can you see why I am not able to just go back to sleep? 🙂

I hope everything goes well.

Please keep me in your prayers.

Much love,
